Garmin Oregon 700 shuts down after 30 seconds in GPS technology and devices Posted June 16, 2018 On 15-6-2018 at 5:52 PM, AlexUK51 said: My Oregon 700 has suddenly decided to spontaneously shut itself down after about 30 seconds from starting up. I have tried going into Settings to check if anything is amiss but am timed out before I can do this. I have tried changing batteries but this doesn't fix it. Has anyone had experience of this and can suggest a solution? Many thanks, Alex A few weeks ago i had the same probleem while geocaching. My Oregon 700 was working fine.I was trying to find a chirp cache, so i turned the chirp function on in my settings. After about 20-30 sec my Oregon stopped working and each time after i turned on my gps it shut down after aprox.20 sec. Turning the chirp function Off again solved my problem. A friend cacher had the same problem and it was solved by turning off the chirp function.
